During testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Attorney General Jeff Sessions “came under fire from senators for ‘stonewalling’ and dodging as he claimed he could not answer certain questions because the president may want to invoke executive privilege,” NBC News reports.

“There were few definitive answers. Asked for yes and no answers, he said he didn’t recall certain things. Asked if he’d had more meetings with Russians, he said at one point no, and at another point he really couldn’t remember any more.”

When questioned by California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris, Sessions “said he wasn’t able to be ‘rushed’ on his answers, saying, ‘it makes me nervous.'”
